    The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening reviews: Meta 88, OC 88

    in Nintendo Discussion 3 days ago

    Barkley said: Never played the original, only Zelda Games I've played much of is Ocarina of Time 3DS and BOTW. But I'm going to pick this up.I did play a few hours of Phantom Hourglass but I can't really remember that. I also played 4-ish hours of Majora's Mask but didn't like it. That's perfectly normal; I try not to remember the DS Zelda games either. :D  (Hated the...

    Favourite Nintendo hardware revision (so far)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 August 2019

    The DS Lite would be first for its sleek design and beautiful bright screen, with the GBA SP being a respectable second. The worst is definitely the Wii revision for its Gamecube/online omissions and its ugly design. ...

    Nintendo Switch Lite Officially Revealed - $199, September 20th, Dedicated Handheld

    in Nintendo Discussion on 10 July 2019

    It's a shame that it's undockable because if it were, I'd replace my current switch with this as my main system in a second. I'm sure it's because the Switch Lite is not meant to run at a higher performance and does not have a fan, but not being able to play it on the TV is a problem for me. I don't take my Switch with me anywhere but I do play a lot around the house, and I'm tempted to get one...

    Which early 3D "look" stands up better to you?

    in Gaming Discussion on 24 June 2019

    If we're just comparing the ability to do 3D engines then I think N64 was much better, despite the blurry graphics. Like many have stated, the N64 was designed to do convincing 3D better. For example, the N64 hardware had a z-buffer which allowed for 3D objects' images to remain stationary like they would in reality. For example, when you approach a statue in Tomb Raider and then proceed to walk...

    Genesis/Megadrive Mini is going to be the best mini-console ever made!

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 May 2019

    Most of the titles so far are good, minus a few throwaways like Dr Robotnik and Sonic Spinball. Alex Kidd is lame but I get why it's there and I don't like Toejam and Earl at all but I know some people do. Street Fighter is also a complete waste because the controls on a 3 button pad are absurd.But assuming everything is handled well with this I'll definitely be getting one, mostly because my...

    Donkey Kong Country vs Yoshi's Island

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 March 2019

    I really like DKC (especially the first one) but easily Yoshi's Island for me.DKC is a fun platformer with beautiful visuals. Yoshi's Island is a masterpiece and probably one of my top 3 platformers of all time along with Super Mario World and Super Mario Bros 3. Even Tropical Freeze (my favorite DKC game) can't compete with the first Yoshi's Island. Its level design is great (love collecting...

    Super Mario Maker 2 OR a Brand New 2D Super Mario Game

    Will Mario Maker 2 become a 10+ million seller?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 March 2019

    I still say that if Mario Maker had been a launch game for the WiiU, the console would have sold close to Gamecube numbers. Alas, we will never know. Anyway, to answer the question, absolutely 10m+. ...

    Best motion controls on Wii

    in Nintendo Discussion on 10 February 2019

    To me, the pointer controls specifically were the single best thing about the Wii. Playing a game like Prime Trilogy at 60fps with a steadied hand is one of the best experiences I've ever had with a game and it will be sorely missed when Prime 4 releases on Switch. I truly hope that Nintendo releases a sensor bar add on for the dock and Wii Remote support....

    Rare's vs Retro's Donkey Kong Country games

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 June 2018

    Tropical Freeze > any of the others, with the original Rare DKC a fairly close second. Returns, however, was not all that great for me and was too severely hampered by the abysmal control choice of having to shake the Wii remote to roll. I find it surprising how many people choose DKC 2 as the best of the original trilogy. It was just so uninspired and "me too" compared to the awesome...

    Best original Xbox game besides Halo 1/2

    in Microsoft Discussion on 10 May 2018

    Splinter Cell 1 & 2.  The controls and aiming, the level design; to me the series was so much better than MGS during that generation.  And Pandora Tomorrow's multiplayer was great. Splinter Cell wasn't exclusive to Xbox, but it was best on that console IMO....

    Your favorite Late Night Show host

    Great thread; I thought about making one on this topic a couple of years ago.  I'll just stick to the five I watch (Colbert, Fallon, Kimmel, Meyers and Conan).   Best Monologue: Tie:  Colbert & Kimmel I love Jimmy Kimmel's monologue as his delivery and attitude are great. His only weakness here is that he tends to interrupt his monologue with lame comedy bits...

My sentiments exactly.  I haven't played it yet either, but everything I've seen and heard so far leaves me longing for a traditional 2D Metroid instead....

    9 years ago The Dark Knight was Released.

    in Movies Discussion on 19 July 2017

    One of my favorite movies ever to be sure, but it's hard for me to classify it as a "superhero movie". To me, TDK is a great movie about a vigilante who pursues a criminal that just happen to be Batman and The Joker, respectively. For me: Best movie that "feels" like a superhero movie - The Avengers. Best movie that happens to have a superhero in it - TDK. ...

    Which is the most significant (important) console in history?

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 July 2017

    Definitely the NES IMO. Yes, it brought the NA home gaming industry back with a bang and really established the 3rd party business model but its biggest achievement to me is that there were so many elements of game design that became standards on the NES thanks to games like SMB and Zelda....
